The library will be celebrating its 120th Anniversary this Saturday Feb 28th from 12 Noon until 2pm. As you can see from the picture of our charter, that is the exact date on which we became incorporated as a library, making us one of the oldest in the Capital Region. Join us on Saturday, where we will debut a slideshow of snapshots from some 50 years of library memories, debut a new exhibit in our display case and so much more! Refreshments will be served and library lovers from near and far are most welcome. For more information please contact the library at 237-0891.
The library will be closed on Monday January 19th for the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday. As a result, no materials will be due that day. We will reopen on Tuesday Jan 20th for regular business hours. May we suggest that you take this opportunity to go see the Oscar nominated film Selma?
On Sunday Sept 14th (yes Sunday hours are back!) the library will host a multi-media program about the Trans Adirondack Route. Erik Schlimmer, founding member of Friends of the Trans-Adirondack Route, will be here to discuss the history of this cross Adirondack route and his group’s mission to maintain and promote its use. Erik is also the author of several books on hiking and the Adirondacks. The program is free and begins at 2pm.
Our second visit to the Waterford Harbor Farmer’s Market this summer will be an introduction to E-Books and E-Readers and how the library can help patrons access them for free from the library . Library Director Tim McDonough will be available to demonstrate how this technology works and how the library can help users get the most from their devices. So join us on Sunday Aug. 17 from 9-12pm and learn how e-books are changing the way people read!
